Stress Reduction


Fitness and health goes well beyond exercise. Exercise alone can only marginally improve your fitness and health if the other pillars of health such as sleep, stress management and nutrition are not solid. If your sleep hygiene is poor, it is more difficult to lose weight and keep it off due to higher levels of ghrelin, the hunger hormone.

Stress levels have been correlated to the amount of abdominal fat. Food intake needs to be monitored. You can exercise 6 hours a day and not lose weight if your nutrition is poor. In order to get results from exercise it is necessary to keep your stress levels, sleep and nutrition under control. This month we will be incorporating Qi Gong techniques to help us improve sleep and reduce stress. Contact me at www.CarolMichaelsFitness.com for more information.
